CDPR: ‘Cyberpunk 2077‘ next-gen upgrade will use ‘all new functions and technical possibilities. The Night City is one of the biggest anticipated game of 2020, released on console few days ago. While the game looks and runs great on PC and next-gen hardware, but disasterous on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
CD Projekt RED has apologized for the state of the game on last-gen consoles, and vowed to rebuild its reputation by refunding and fixing as soon as possible.
“We would like to start by apologising for not showing you the game on base last-gen consoles before it premiered and, in consequence, not allowing you to make a more informed decision about your purchase,” CDPR wrote in a statement earlier this like. “We should have paid more attention to making it run better on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.”
In a recent video interview with Bloomberg TV, CDPR co-founder Marcin Iwiński talked a little bit about what we can expect from the “true” Cyberpunk 2077 next-gen upgrade when it hits PS5 and Xbox Series consoles.
“So, right now the game works in back Compatibility, and it works very well,” said Iwinski. “The consoles are much faster. And then, we’re planning a free next-gen update for everyone who’s got a next-gen console. So, if you buy the game now, you can play it on next-gen. It works great because of the higher capabilities of the new consoles. But then, with the next-gen update, we’ll use all the functionalities or the new functions and technical possibilities provided by the new platforms.”
As we’ve already seen, PC is by far the best way to experience Cyberpunk 2077, we’re waiting for fixes for old gen consoles version and also hoping that the next-gen console version won’t be messed up.
